I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. “Resolution” sounds like a solution to something that needs to be fixed, like a crumbling marriage or a recipe that doesn’t have enough kick to it.
Last year, my life needed fixing. For the first time in quite a few years, I made a resolution. I resolved to not go on any more terrible first dates from Internet dating sites. It worked out because I had one last internet first date last NYE, and I’ve been inseparable from V ever since.
This year, I’m happier than I can put into words. Everything seems to have fallen into place, and I couldn’t think of a single thing to change even if I tried.
So, for this year, in lieu of making a resolution and fixing something that’s not broken (if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!), I’m making 3 simple goals. If I achieve them, great. If I don’t, oh well. Sometimes goals are achieved, and sometimes goals change. That’s the beauty of human nature.
1. Blog everyday.
My friend Casey blogged everyday last year, and, in her words, it ruled. I was inspired by the VQChat the other day, and I think I will at least attempt to blog everyday of 2014.
2. Save money for our wedding.
It’s 2014 which means HOLY CRAP WE GET MARRIED NEXT YEAR. We’ve officially set a date, picked a venue, and found an officiant so it’s time to get cooking! (And not just for the bucket of fried chicken I owe Nina either.)
3. Write a book.
With my new latte maker, I’m hoping to find the motivation– and caffeination level– required to actually bring the book idea I’ve had for a while to life. The idea has been met with excitement with some of the fabulous connections I’ve head the pleasure of meeting this past year or so, and I really hope I can finally make it happen.
Do you have any goals for 2014? Or even resolutions?
